Porsche Certified Pre-Owned Program

March 15, 2013

For those who may not be able to afford a new Porsche, but want to be behind the wheel of a reliable, sporty vehicle with serious brand cachet, a CPO sold by Porsche comes with the uncompromised standards of a brand new Porsche. All Porsche CPO vehicles are less than eight model years old and have less than 100,000 miles.

Porsche takes its CPO vehicle inspections very seriously and minute details are of the most importance.

Financing a Porsche CPO Vehicle

When financing any vehicle, the buyer has a few options. A bank, credit union, or online finance company can help you with the financing. However, Porsche CPO vehicle standard financing is comparable to new car terms and finance rate. Porsche also offers Porsche Classics retail financing for Porsche models that are over 10 years old; therefore Porsche CPO vehicle owners are eligible for the same low interest rates for up to 84 months with a minimal or no down payment for qualified participants.
